Perfect!

My husband and I went to the Riu Las Americana on our honeymoon and it was by far the most luxurious place I have stayed. The room and view were amazing, clean and comfortable. The drinks were always full and there was always food available. I wouldn't change anything, the trip was perfect.

2nd Time a charm

Just as good as the first time we visited. Staff is great tip a couple bucks and you will have drinks all day without asking, they will ask you. Food is something for everyone. Them resturants are great just need to reserve a spot, no problem. Entertainment staff is great, awesome pool games and music. Night resort hotel shows are fun and entertaining. Hotel is close to all clubs plus they reserve table at different night clubs every night with transportation from hotel. Inside bartenders are the bomb, Abundio is his name and he makes a mean chocolate martini. Like I say I know its all inclusive but tip a couple bucks and their your friend for life. Only thing with all the resorts you just have to be early with your towels on the chairs by the main pool but plenty of beach chairs and they have a nice beach area. I would go again.

Pampered like a Queen

Our stay at the RIU Palace was fabulous! Everything was as wonderful as I'd hoped it would be & more... This hotel is GRAND in so many ways... Beautiful, clean, top notch service, food was good overall, the water is gorgeous!! Everyone is friendly & courteous...The weather was sunny & nice the entire week we were there, so we mainly enjoyed the pool & the beach & totally relaxed... We did visit some of the markets for souvenirs & we took a day trip to Chichen Itza & had an amazing time... Highly recommend it, but maybe during March/April or Oct. Very HOT in Aug. & we are from FL & use to the heat... You'll spend a minimum of two hrs. walking around the ruins & then you'll want to enjoy the lovely lunch that they have at the restaurant there. The only weak link... we felt the entertainment at the hotel could have been better... We enjoyed three of the shows... Wonderful vacation~

Excellent

We stayed at the Riu Palace Las Americas August 6-11(2014).. it was a fantastic experience. The resort is very clean and well kept. The staff is so friendly and literally wait on you hand and foot. The food at the buffett is amazing, by far the best buffett I have been to yet. Many choices of food and very fresh. If going to Cancun. RIU is the way to go! And you get to use the amenities at the other Riu sister hotels.
